Firefly
"This is such a moving, powerful book written with such elegance and poise. Despite the weight of the plot and subject matter in the first half (wow, wanted to slit my wrists at one point!), it ends ultimately on such promise and hope. The analogies alone are some of the most lyrical I have ever read. And Virginia is a complex, fascinating character. I love how the author juxtaposed both her strength and frailty, her breakdowns and her ability to recover from the harshest of tragedies. And the times where Henry switches back to Grace, how different this person is depending on the clothing/persona she embodies. Grace seemed more authoritative, mature and in control than Henry, yet it's Henry's shyness, respect, and his relationships with both people and the land that she ultimately craves.  Can't say enough about how incredible this book is, definitely one of the best in the genre."   Amazon customer
